The inscription on this fine engraving describes Louis XVI as ‘victim’, suggesting the work dates from around the time of his arrest in 1792 and execution in 1793. It is one of many prints of the deposed Bourbon family that George purchased. George would have prints such as this in mind when he commissioned Sir Thomas Lawrence to paint his own coronation portrait (displayed in the final gallery).

Purchased in 1799
